ALFRED NOYES COMING. 



Every one who was in College last year, remem- 
bering with pleasure the visit of Alfred Noyes, the 
English poet, will he glad to know that he is to 
return to Wellesley for a reading of his own poems 
on Monday evening, February 23, 1914. To the 
Freshmen and others who did not hear him last 
year, this will come as a welcome announcement. 
Mr. Noyes is now making an extensive tour ol the 
United Stales, and meeting with great success and 
favor wherever In- goes. This visit to Wellesley 
has been especially arranged for; let us give him a 
royal welcome. 

Tickets will lie on sale at the elevator table early 
next week, at thirty-five cents each. Remember

In one of the "From a College Window" essays 
of Mr. Arthur C. Benson, there is a phrase which 
never fails to win a smile from an English class, or 
from almost any responsive reader. In connection 
with his plea for making conversation "a definite 
mental occupation, not a mere dribbling of thought 
into words," he admits — and this is the passage in 
question — that "There come to all people horrible 
tongue-tied moments when they feel like ,1 walrus 
on an ice-floe, heavy, melancholy, ineffective." 
He goes on to prescribe for this not uncommon 
situation, the panacea of catholicity of interest, a 
full mind, the familiar formula of having something 
to say if we desire to be effective in saying it. 

Never was this truth more clearly brought home 
than at the meeting of wage-earning women, held 
at Faneuil Hall on December 16, under the auspices 
of the Boston Equal Suffrage Association for Good 
Government. The subject of the meeting was 
"Why the Wage-Earning Woman Wants the Vote." 
The speakers represented man>' of the large in 
dustries of our country — the Shirt-waist Makers' 
Union, the Ladies' Garment Workers' Association, 
the textile mills in Fall River. There was the as- 
sistant buyer from Filene's, latch' promoted from 
the ranks of saleswomen, a representative from the 
Boston Telephone Cirls' Union, and a demonstrator 
from Siegel's. Mrs. Maud Wood Park presided, and 
a numbei of piomincnt suffrage workers joined the 
group on the platform. Very few of these girls 
had spoken before a large audience; certainly none 
of ,'mi., bcfo.c r i^.i wlifl ii .".lied 

door and galleries of Faneuil Hall that night. Yet 
with hardly an exception they showed no nervous- 
ness. More than this, they spoke with a concise- 
ness and a precision, an unerring, if unconscious, 
instinct for the vital word and phrase, which would 
put many a trained college girl to shame. So 
stirred was each one with the message --he had to 
offer that self-consciousness was routed out. Per- 
haps the exceptional case noted above proved the 
rule most conclusively. Certainly it proved the 
human temper of the audience. It was evident 
from the first that the words of this speaker came 
with difficulty. Her throat was dry and contracted. 
As she stopped to drink the glass of water solicit- 
ously supplied her by Mrs. Park, the audience, in 
entire sympathy- with her "tongue-tied moment," 
broke into loud applause. One old gentleman near 
me beat the floor with his cane and shouted " Plucky 
little girl! Go it! plucky little girl!" And the 
plucky little girl went. Without any loss of dig- 
nity, or a single deprecatory smile she ran her course 
to the finish, said what had been burned into her 
to say and sat down. Nobody will forget her mes- 
sage — the one with which those who have been 
watching the main current of events fpr women in 
industry have long become familiar: "Give us the 
chance to help determine the conditions under 
which we must work." 

It was much the same in substance with the rest. 
The young woman from Filene's spoke with touch- 
ing gratitude of the opportunity they who were 
"so fortunate as to work in this shop," had to vote 
upon whether they should wear black or white 
shirt-waists in the winter, as well as upon matters 
of greater import. One speaker pointed out with 
surprising clearness the discrimination made be- 
tween men and women in the proposed applica- 
tion of the Income Tax. The representative of 
the garment-workers vividly pictured tin.' man- 
made conditions which she and her fellow- workers 
had endured in the sweat-shops of New York. The 
telephone operator reminded her audience that 



during the long days of the threatened strike last 
summer, while the girl operators patiently persisted 
in their demands, not once had the convenience 
of the public been interfered with — "You always 
got your call just the same!" And the demon- 
strator from Seigel's summed up the present help- 
lessness of working women's unions without the 
defense of the ballot, with the same directness and 
clear grasp of her facts. Each speaker drove home 
her particular issue, and kept within her time limit. 
The heroes of the Revolution and of the Civil 
War looked down from their gilt-framed portraits 
a bit grimly upon this unusual gathering in their 
midst — and yet, I fancied, with a sympathetic 
gleam. Did they not also once plead the cause of 
lair representation and personal liberty, and did 
they not speak what was in them with no uncertain 
voice?

SENIOR-JUNIOR DEBATE. 



be in- 



" Should courses in vocational training 
stituted in Wellesley College?" 

This very live question of our college day and 
generation, was debated by well-matched teams 
from the Junior and Senior classes last Monday 
evening, January 12, at 7.15, in Billings Hall. The 
judges were: Mr. Fellows, Superintendent of 
Schools in South Framingham, Mr. Brooks, a 
Wellesley lawyer and Miss Burnham of the English 
Department. ' Following are the names of the 
members of the teams, the first three mentioned, 
in each case, being the sneakers:

The affirmative opened the debate with an ac- 
count of the history of the question from its out- 
come in other colleges to the appointment, by our 
Academic Council, of a Vocational Guidance Com- 
mittee, in June, 1913. She defined "Courses in 
vocational training" as "Courses which shall 
prepare students to enter, upon graduation, some 
vocation other than teaching." These courses, 
she specified, should be purely elective, and sub- 
ject to the present system of giouping. 

The following main arguments were presented 
by the Affirmative: 

Vocational courses should be instituted in Welles- 
ley. for: 

1. Wellesley graduates are in need of remunera- 
tive occupation immediately upon graduation. 
Out of two hundred and forty-nine membeis of the 
class of 1914, two hundred and eighteen expect to 
enter occupations next year. Of these, one hundred 
and seventy-five state that they would have taken 
vocational courses if they had been offered. One 
hundred and eighty-three prefer not to teach. 

2. There are great openings for college-trained 
women in other fields than education. A college 
education, as it stands, is no longer considered 
a passport. Special, technical training is required 
everywhere. 

3. It is possible, as well as desirable, for Welles- 
lev to supply both technical and cultural training. 
The combination is successfully made in many 
universities. A vocational course in Wellesley 
could be equivalent to a fourteen or fifteen-hour

EDITORIALS. 



An Improvement. 



The Editors of the New- try to fulfil the func- 
tion of critic-, and, as critics, they take delight, 
not only in finding fault with the various institu- 
tions, standards, and ideals of the college communi- 
ty, but also in giving hearty praise where it is due. 
We feel that tin- college Debating Club, in its present 
flourishing state, thoroughly deserves such praise. 
A year or mi ago our debating was not a thing to 
be proud of; in fact, we all felt like changing the 
subject ol conversation when anyone from Vassar 
a-ked us about our debating teams, and questioned 
why we did not engage in intercollegiate contests. 
Our sense of shame kept us from saying that we 
really did not know enough about debating to under- 
take anything of the -ort ; but that was our thought. 
Whether those who have led in building up our 
debating wen- especially susceptible to this sense 
ol shame, or whether they are naturally so enthusi- 
astic over debating thai they simply had to improve 
the state of affair-, we do not know. At any rate 
the> have worked wonders. The class debating 
re no longer vague and shadowy bodies of 
whose existence no one but themselves is certain; 
they arever) real and solid, ver) energetic and each 
team i- inspired with the de-ire to win fame for itsown 
particular class. It is quite a common event in these 
da) -. to find notices "i inter-class debates posted on 
the bulletin boards. On all sides is heard the 
question, "Are you going to the debate to-night?" 
and the answer, "Yes, I really think I must. It is 
■ I ' " 
An intellectual pastime of this -ort is especial!) 
valuable in the woman's < ollege of to-da) . Women 
iteadil) advancing into the open; without fear 
the) are taking their places in the industries and 
professions of modern civilization. They are mak- 
into the dot tor'a sanctum, the lawyer's 
office, and even, so we learn from the Vocational 
' iuidam e Bureau, into the poli eman'a beat ! 

Woman baa always been famed for talking, for 
having tin- "lasl word." In her work in the com 
parativef) new fields now open to her she has 
ter need than ever for facility ol speech, — 
trained speech. She needs a mind trained to be 
■ he power to express i l> arl\ and

mind produces; ihi needi self-assurance, self-con

team; but we are to put Mount Holyoke to the test, 
on the fourteenth of March. The Faculty of that 
college have agreed to let the students prepare a 
second debating team, which shall debate with 
Wellesley the same question that their first team 
is to debate with Vassar,— only upholding the other 
side ol the question. This, of course, gives Mount 
Holyoke some advantage over us, as they will be 
fully prepared on both sides of the question. There 
are to be four or five try-outs for speakers on our 
team, and we hope that they will be enthusiastically 
attended. Let us get the best team possible, and 
show the other colleges how Wellesley's debating 
has improved! 

The Shadow or the Substance. 

A man's house is his castle, according to the 
good old code of our Saxon ancestors, and to enter 
a man's house against his will is to infringe on one 
of the sacred privileges of liberty. But if a man's 
house is inviolable, how much more so is his mind. 
It is the holy of holies, and to break in upon it un- 
bidden is the ultimate sacrilege. 

And yet in college, where a man's house is not his 
castle, and where no amount of busy signs can 
asstire more than a momentary privacy, a mere 
breathing spell in the elbow-rubbing intimacy of our 
community life, why is it that mental privacy gets 
so little consideration? Many of us seem to have 
a morbid eagerness to pry into our neighbor's 
minds and to uncover the very essence of their 
personalities. A girl may be so indiscreet as to rc- 
a bit of herself in writing. Immediately, in- 
stead of thanking the powers that be, and going our 
own ways, there an- thosi of us who start to in- 
vestigate, prompted, no doubt, by a worthy desire 
to discover the best and the most beautiful in those 

about us, but forgetting, unfortunately, in our eager- 
. 'hat we cannot share tin se unbidden, and that 
trying to enter upon another's inner life without 
port of friendship and mutual under- 
ling is like pulling open a rose or trying to 
make the sun rise. 

Cannol we all, then, be more thoughtful about 
the right, of others to intellectual and spiritual 
privai ■ I., i us not go battering at the door when 
the pursued ha fled into In t in tronghold. In 
our to /.. ,1 to ieize the ub tance we get 

only the shadow, and Badly learn thai some things are 
ur for tl . and that the best thing 

for which we have to strive ami wait.

is nothing but unnatural and unhealthy curiosity* 
and we are not worthy of what we seek. 



Progress. 

We are told that we are in a "state of transition: " 
The proportion of student and faculty regulations 
of non academic interests is still a mooted question, 
the importance of these activities and their relation 
to the academic life of the college is hotly disputed, 
the value and place of vocational and professional 
interests is eagerly discussed. "Questioned — 
disputed — discussed:" So has it always been in 
times of change — ideas have been propagated and 
opinions exchanged, Public Opinion, that vital 
organ of big and little communities has been stimu- 
lated and activity has resulted. Some of our friends 
are just now clamoring for activity of one sort 
and another. "Stop talking and do something," is 
the slogan we read and hear and take up and repeat. 

Last year we did something and secured new- 
representation, a new right to speak in our own be- 
half and this year we are complaining of the in- 
conveniences occasioned by the working of a new 
organization and clamoring for more "action" 
from the outside to remedy the faults that we think 
we recognize. Some situations correct themselves 
automatically if they are given a fair chance. It is 
claimed that even the Mexican situation will take 
care ol itself if alien powers leave it alone. In 
praise of President Wilson's policy of non-inter- 
ference the Independent of January 12, 1914, ex- 
presses a hope that he will continue this past policy, 
"Patience; patience and then still more patience 
must be our watchword for the present and for a 
long time to come." 

We arc not in a state of war, we may not even be 
in a state of transition properly so-called, but we 
cannot fail to be conscious of a certain spirit of 
unrest, of changing ideals and new material condi- 
tions and any of the many changes in any community 
calls for patience. Please do not understand that 
patience means retrogression or quiescence or ultra 
conservatism. L may well be in harmony with the 
oft-repeated Progress; but it is not in harmony with 
iconoclasm merely lor the sake of novelty or varien . 
Unreasoning radicalism is not confined to college, — 
it is the danger run by all progressive movements, 
College is a good place l<> get it and a still better 
place to acquire something liner, more discriminat- 
ing and no whit less enthusiastic or effective. All our 

college training; our studies, our life, our self- 
government tend to teach us to view question! 
modernl) yet with a knowledge of the wisdom and 
experience of t he past , to consider the movements in 
which we participate with a due sense of proportion. 
I. ii us recognize change when it comes and under- 
stand I he need and take our share in directing the 

change so that it will be improvement. Let us help 
Progress towards what we feel is the ultimate good. 
Lei us keep our eyes anil ears and minds open for 
indications ol new demands and new solutions of 

difficulties, but let US not rush with unconsidered 
Zeal to echo I he " la-l (1 \ ."

not later than twenty-four hours after the close of 
the last examination of the examination period. If 
the reason assigned is judged adequate by the 
Academic Council, the student will incur a 'de- 
ficiency;' if the reason is judged inadequate, the 
student will incur a 'default' or 'condition.' If a 
student fails to make an explanation within the 
time specified, the case will be treated as if the ex- 
planation had been inadequate." B. Art. Ill, 
Sect. 6.

A SHEAF OF NEW YEAR GREETINGS. 



Gleaned from the Tributes of my Friends. 

By Aim HARRIET. 

[I was deeply impressed by the classic note si ruck 
in these little verses which came to me on New 
Year's Day, both to bring me greeting, and to thank 
me for a little hag in which I had enclosed a Kewpie 
— a mere trifle. The editor of the poem is a Welles- 
ley girl, who evidently fell its peculiar appropriate - 
ness to my gifl .]

5. The sun. 6. See Astronomy 2. 7. Idem. 8. 
Idem. 9. See H. P. E. 10. The author is supposed 
to have meant the sun. The reader is reminded 
that Apollo, not Jove, drove the horses of the sun, 
but the substitution of Jove is probably due to 
the metre rather than to ignorance of mythology. 
11. A winged horse. 12. To rime with "thanks." 
13. Apollo was the son of Diana. 14. There has 
been much discussion about these two lines. Some 
consider them merely an interpolation, while others 
accept them as the gist and point of the whole 
thing.

From one who thought me musical: 

" May your wits be sharp, 
Your obstacles flat, 
Your blessings trebled, 
Your thoughts far from base, 
Your parlor piano, 
Your years forte, — 
During this prelude of the New Year."

Natick, Mass., Jan. 1, 1914. 

Dear Aunt Harriet: 

On this first morning of the New Year I want to 
add my drop to the great volume of tribute which 
must so inevitably be yours! 1 low can I tell you 
all that your pages have meant? And will mean, 
for f am sending with this my renewed subscrip- 
tion for your beloved paper. If I am discouraged by 
the pressure of my daily tasks, — for moments of 
liscouragement do come to the best of us, as you, 
dear Auntie, so evidently appreciate — I have but 
to turn to your helpful words, for advice on eti-

soul's most intimate problems. 

And may I tell you of a further liberty which I 
have taken? I have cut out your sweet editorial on 
farewells, and pasted it on a sheet of white card- 
board. Whenever I hear that one of my friends is 
about to go on a journey, I copy it for her (or him), 
that she, too, may be touched by that sad but sweet 
sentiment: "Goodbye." I offer this as a sugges- 
tion to others of your correspondents. 

May the blessings which you have so freely 
showered on others, be yours this New Year season! 
Affectionately and gratefully,

fate of us all to be misunderstood. I suffer for the

SENIOR-JUNIOR DEBATE. 



major, without either lowering its standard of 
efficiency or overshadowing the liberal arts train- 
ing. 

4. In instituting vocational courses. \\ ellesley 
would fulfil more perfectly her ideals of service. 
There should be no break between technical and 
cultural training, if a college education is to prove 
what Mr. Durant wished: "Not an end it itself, but 
a means to an end," and that end. intelligent service. 
Wellesley has always enlarged its aim to meet its 
needs. This is the next step. 

The main arguments for the Negative were as 
follows: 

Vocational courses should not be instituted in 
Wellesley College, for: 

1. An attempt to supply both vocational and 
liberal art> training would result in only a smatter- 
ing of both. The cultural courses could not be as 
extensive as at Vassar, Rryn Mawr, etc., nor the 
technical course- as intensive as at such a college 
as Simmons. 

2. Vocational courses would involve an early 
specialization which is highly undersiarble. The 
average college girl is at the age when her ideas 
undergo a complete revolution. A vocational 
course would have to be elected in her Sophomore 
year, and a wrong choice, once made, would hamper 
her life. The wide basis of a cultural education, 
followed after graduation by specialization, pays 
ni the end. 

3. Vocational courses would not be in accord- 
ance with the fundamental ideals of a liberal arts 
college, which are: To train for broad and efficient 
citizenship by developing initiative and judgment. 
Technical training, except as it follows upon a 
lil»cral art- course, is too narrow and commercial 
in its aim. 

The rebuttals were made for the Affirmative 
by Mi- Stitt and Miss Hirsh, for the negative 
Ia Mi- Watson and Miss Pilling. Mr. Brooks 
announced the decision of the judge* as unanimous- 
ly in favor of the Affirmative, and congratulated 
l>oth teams on their handling of the subject. 

Those interested in the Debating Club wen- 
struck by the marked advance in assimilation of 
material, deliver) and technique shown by both 
rides in the d< bate. While the latter qualities were 

exhibited 1<\ the -i\ Bpeakers, they would have been 
impossible withoul tin thorough, intelligent work 
of the remaining members <<f the teams. Both 
>., 11 developed th.it, at one time, the 
jud^. ered tin case to be a tie. The chief 

balance in favor of the Affirmative came at the time 
of rebuttal

answer. We learn that the ignominy of being a 
"doll" possessed of "Wellesley spirit" is exceeded 
only by being an "all around girl" who may, for 
instance, dance the modern dances. We are so 
tired of being preached at, adverse critics. Did it 
ever occur to yon we might prefer to be all around 
girls or — even "dolls" — that we have not all the 
same ideas of the perfect standard. Moreover.it 
seems to me this critical class (and it certainly has 
become a class) has chosen things it cannot better 
by criticism: personal affairs which must be settled, 
each girl for herself. Why should the critics, even 
though intellectual, feel that Lhej are able to es- 
tablish our moral standard? It is not a matter of 
intellectuality. 

We would urge that the modern dances have 
walked, not "crept," into the best society circles to 
stay —that they were performed in the First House 
of the Land at Miss Wilson's wedding (the society 
present being certainly the "elect" and probably 
the "eminently respectable"); that in two of the 
oldest ami most conservative Boston boarding 
schools (one for ^irls and one for boys) they ate be- 
ing not only sanctioned, but taught by the faculty. 



We would even refrain from "it is the spirit in which 
they are danced," for by mote than barely recogniz- 
ing these points we are defeating the point of this 
Free Press: urging too strongly our point of view 
on others. 

"We as college women" are being watched — 
and watched for our too strong!}' adverse, indiscrim- 
inate criticism. Why nof let definite criticism of 
our dancing rest where it should — with the admin- 
istrative powers of the College? If you feel you 
must exert influence, why not by example rather 
than precept? It is a habit a part of Wellesley 
ins fallen into; this picking to pieces of everything 
not exactly suited to our tastes and attempting to 
force our own decision on every girl we meet. The 
criticism may be clever, pointed, but please re- 
member a few are old-fashioned enough even yet, 
to prefer to lie all around girls. Each girl has to take 
her own stand in this matter— independent of the 
News or Magazine. She must think out, aided 
only by her conscience, her own ideas of what is 
worth while. "We would not be prudish, yet we 
would be decent" — -in the first and foremost sense 
of the word. E. E. J., '14.

ALUMNA NOTES. 



NKWS OF THE WELLESLEY CLUBS. 



Will all secretaries of the Wellesley Clubs kindly 
send notices of club meetings directly to the Grad- 
uate Editor,Miss Bertha March, 621 Main sired, 
Wakefield, Massachusetts. Will they also take 
care never to write but on one side of their paper. 

The Editor. 

Boston. 

The Boston Association of Smith College Alumna' 
entertained the Boston Wellesley College Club 
at a reception, given November 7 at the Boston 
College Club, to meet Miss Comstock, Dean of 
.Smith College, and MissWaite, Dean of Wellesley 
College. Afterthe reception Miss Perkins, president 
of the Smith Club, introduced Miss Waite, who 
spoke on various phases of the work of lean, which 
is so closely related to all sides of the college life, and 
also with the world, academic and otherwise, outside 
of college walls. Miss Comstock then spoke in favor 
of a large college, answering clearly the old ob- 
jections to a large institution, and expressing her 
faith in the power of Smith and Wellesley, both of 
which are now awmted among the so-called big 
colleges. 

A business meeting of the Boston Wellesley 
College (dub was held at Miss Guild and Miss 
Evans 1 School, Boston, on Saturday, December 

6, at three o'clock. 

In addition to the regular club business, the 
amendment of the Model Constitution proposed by 
the Graduate Council, providing for the division of 
the duties of secretary-treasurer between a corre- 
sponding secretary and treasurer in clubs number- 
ing one hundred members or more was passed. Mr-;. 
Catherine Jones Reid, '99, was chosen as a possible 
candidate for nomination as Alumna Trustee, her 
name to be submitted to the nominating cpmmil tee 
ofthcAlumna- Association. A report of the Com- 
mencement festivities in June, 1913, written by Mrs. 
Esther Pruden Walcott, '93, club delegate, was read 
by Mrs. Amorette Winslow Wetherbec, '88. Miss 
Hetty S. Wheeler, '02, chairman of the Publicity 
Committee of the Graduate Council, gave a report of 
the work of the College Press Board. Mrs. Alice 
Campbell Wilson, '95, reported the June meeting 
of the Graduate Council. A brief discussion fol- 
lowed each of these excellent reports, in which vari- 
ous interesting points were brought out. 

The next meeting of the club will be on January 
17, when we are to be the guests of Miss Vida 
Seudder at her new home in Wellesley. 

(Signed) Hazel Hunneweli., 

Recording Secretary. 

New York. 

The November meeting of the New York Welles 
ley Club proved most interesting and very en- 
joyable. 

Miss Platten announced a bazaar to be given by 
the Daily Vacation Bible School Association on 
December 2, and asked the co-operation of club 
members. 

Miss Katharine Scott spoke of the $1,000,000 
fund which was -being raised by the Y. W. C. A. 
Miss Woodward announced the results of the basket- 
ball game which was played between the .Smith and 
Wellesley College Alumna?, the result being 40 — 
19 in favor of Wellesley. Those on the Wellesley 
team were: Dorothy Clark, '11, Grace Yates.'u, 
Sara Woodward, '05, Helen Brant, '13, Lyde Car- 
son, '11, Mary Guernsey, '12. It proved a most 
interesting and exciting game, both to the players 
and to the enthusiastic Alumna? cheering on the side 
lines. 

Miss Matthews reported on the work of the En- 
dowment Fund Committee. The meeting adjourned 
and we had the pleasure of hearing Miss Vida 
Seudder speak on College Settlements. The meet- 
ing was held 'at Miss Nellie Zuckcrman's, to whom we 



owe a vote of thanks for giving us such a delightful 
time. 

Philadelphi \. 

The fall meeting of the Philadelphia Wellesley 
Club was held on Saturday afternoon, V v< mber 22, 
1913, at 3 o'clock, at the Holman School for Girls. 
'I'he president was in the chair, and there were be- 
tween eventj five md one hundred Wellesley 
women present . The minutes of t he previous meet- 
ing were read and approved. The Treasurer's re- 
port was accepted a n id. The proposed amend- 
ment, suggested by the Graduate Council, to be 
added to 10 of Sec. 3. An. IV, of the "Model 
Constitution," which provides that, "(dubs number- 
ing one hundred members or more, may divide the 
duties here stated between a Corresponding Sec- 
retary ami a Treasurer," was read, It was moved, 
econded, and carried, that the amendment be 
adopted. 

According to the method of electing Alumna' 
Trustees, the president, tor the Executive Board, 
present e I to the club the names of three candidates 
to be voted upon, as follows, Ruth Webster Lathrop, 
18K3, Anna Palen, iS«8, Ruth Sharpless Goodwin, 
1898. 

The president also gave a short account of the 
record of each in connection with Wellesley and in 
public life. As the re tull of the ballot, Ruth Sharp- 
less Goodwin was elected the candidate from the 
Philadelphia Wellesley Club. A letter and circular 
in reginl to the two Fellowships offered by the 
Wellesley College Alumna' Association for 1914-15, 
were rea 1, and it was announced thai anyone inter- 
ested in the Fellowships should confer with the 
secretary. 

Mrs. Katharine Weaver Williams spoke of the 
death in this city of Mrs. Harriet Pierce Sanborn, 
and moved that resolutions be offered. It was 
moved, seconded and carried that resolutions ex- 
pressing appreciation of Mrs. Sanborn, md extending 
Sympathy to her family, be drawn up, and sent to her 
family an I to the COLLEGE NEWS and that a copy 
be preserved in the minutes. Mrs. Williams and 
Dr. Lathrop were appointed a committee with the 
chair, to offer the resolutions. 

Dorothy Culver Mills, 1909, toll of the share 
which the Alumnae have in the College News, and 
of the great value of that paper to every Wellesley 
wi man. 

Helen Garwood, 1898, the Philadelphia Club 
Councillor, gave a report of the Graduate Council 
meetings in June, 1913, telling of the work and aim of 
the Council. She asked that any suggestions or 
questions for discussion at these meetings be given, 
or sent to her at once. 

Miss Beale then introduced President Pendleton, 
who brought us her message from Wellesley. After 
speaking of the new model kindergarten at Welles- 
ley, and the very large registration, there being 
1,480 students, she told us how we can all share in 
the work of the College by helping in the plan for 
raising a Million Dollar Endowment Fund for 
Wellesley. As a beginning of this fund, we have two 
gifts of $100,000 each, given through Alumnae, 
and $200,000 promised by the General Education 
Bureau, if we complete the $1,000,000 by June, 1915. 
Our share in helping Wellesley to have adequate 
resources to carry on the work so well begun is, of 
course, to give what we can, and to try to obtan 
gifts. But more especially, so to live that others, 
knowing Wellesley through us, may want to give. 

To bring this matter home to us, Miss Beale in- 
troduced our local chairman of the Endowment 
Fund Committee, Mrs. Helen Foss Wood, 1894, who 
asked the co-operation of all in the work. 

A rising vote of thanks and appreciation was 
extended to Miss Pendleton for coming to Phil- 
adelphia. And a vote of thanks was given the Misses 
Braley for their hospitality in giving the school for 
the meeting. 



After the meeting, Miss Pendleton and the old. 1 1 
of the club rei eived informally, and all had an oppor- 
tune y of speaking to Miss Pendleton personally.

The officers of the Saint Louis Wellesley Club 
for the year 19 13- 19 14 are: President, Mrs. John

Josephine Little; Corresponding Secretary, Miss

McNair. 

In March, 1913, the club gave a Studio Recep- 
tion for the club's scholarship and about $530 was 
raised, ddiis reception was an effort of the entire 
club, managed by the executive board. It was a 
great success and the club was glad to be known 
as the author of so excellent an entertainment, which 
had the additional merit of being a typical college 
thing. The members of the club were brought into 
closer touch with one another through their work on 
various committees; every member was pressed into 
service.
